“Hey!  It’s not wasting money to pay for [insert thing].  I buy it all the time.”

Hey! It’s not wasting money to pay for expensive male haircuts. I buy it all the time. Haircuts, cheap or expensive, look almost the same for the first week or so. But since I only get a haircut every two to three months, it makes sense to spend a little more and not having to run back every two weeks. I actually spend less this way.  cool smirk

You can get exellent haircuts that aren’t expensive,just do it yourself excaim

I don’t cut my own hair, but I do get free haircuts. My wife is a licensed cosmetologist, so I haven’t paid for a hair cut in 18 years! smile

BTW: You can get an inexpensive cut at the cosmetology schools. (Only the ‘almost’ graduated students are allowed to do this and they are constantly supervised.)

Edit: Hey! What’s wrong with a fancy outdoor kitchen?! Although I’d like a fancy indoor kitchen as well. (And currently have neither.  tongue rolleye)

Take care,

Derek

I have a friend in Hayward, who has a large Hawaiian style kitchen in their back yard. It is wonderful on hot summer days when you don’t want to be indoors! It is my dream to someday have one too!

Sweet! That’s the main reason I’d want one. I certainly use my grill on hot summer days (and cold windy days as well, but that’s a different topic smile) but I can’t imagine it’s the same as having my whole kitchen outside with me.  LOL

Take care,

Derek

If I go over there this summer I’ll take pictures. it is built from traditional Guamanian building material….cinderblock! It has a lanai covering to keep out inclement weather.

Good lord this thread is old.

Anyway, I dug this out because I found a godawful overpriced “eco product” and dammit, it’s just too funny not to make fun of.  But I didn’t think it needed its own thread.

So here is a $350 “Eco-Smart Solid Hardwood Tree Trunk Stool”.  Yup, $350.  You know what that really is?

It’s Log!

Log rolls down stairs
Even in pairs
Rolls over your neighbor’s dog
It’s great for a snack
And fits on your back
It’s log log log

Log log
It’s big
It’s heavy
It’s wood

Log log
It’s better than bad
It’s good!

Sing along, kids!

Yeah.  Shame on you.  Also, God made it.  So you know it’s worth the price.

But if you sit on a painted metal or plastic stool, you don’t get the pleasure of having someone pluck the splinters out of your backside.  LOL

Every product for which a significant part of the price goes into numb-minding commercials interrupting tv programs every few minutes.

If anyone wants a rock as a pet, I can send you one for only $9.99 plus shipping and handling…  On second thought, just go outside and get one for yourself.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.
